    Almost every cookbook has a brisket recipe, but brisket doesna€™t have a cookbooka€”until now. With 30 recipes (some from notable chefs), as well as tips, quotes, stories, cartoons, sidebars, and lots of photos and illustrations, The Brisket Book is a witty and entertaining homage to a Sunday-supper staple.

    "A fun little book, very entertaining with terrific recipes from friends, family and chefs. It is indeed as intended, 'A Love Story with Recipes.'" --Sara Moulton,Good Morning America

    "There's no longer a need for frantically searching for the best brisket recipes. Stephanie Pierson, author, food writer and brisket lover, has written a cookbook filled with only the best brisket recipes, accompanied by illustrations, poems, cartoons and musings.The Brisket Book has a recipe for everyone, and it'll turn you into the star of any potluck." --The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles

    "The Brisket Book is subtitled "a love story with recipes." It literally had me laughing out loud with its cartoons, jokes, stories and more. If you are Jewish, Irish, or even a Texan, brisket is your soul food. The book pays homage with recipes, wine pairings, poems, and everything you need to know to make a version that will make you fall in love." --Cooking with Amy

    "Packed with history, wit, and expert opinions (including a list of 50 things about brisket that people disagree on), this book presents one of the world's great comfort foods in all its lovable, chameleonlike glory, with recipes for corned beef, smoked brisket, Korean brisket soup, brisket burgers, and myriad Jewish braises, including Nach Waxman's supposedly "most-Googled brisket recipe" of all, smothered in onions and virtually no liquid. It is undoubtedly, as the subtitle claims, "A Love Story with Recipes." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

    "This book will put you passionately over the moon for a meat cut that is often taken for granted...full of colorful, lively and sometimes surprising images; the pages are a joy to leaf through for their energetic mix of images, photos and text." --Chicago Tribune

    Food writer, cookbook author, and brisket zealot Stephanie Pierson contends, "Some foods will improve your meal, your mood, your day, your buttered noodles. Brisket will improve your life."

    Brisket is so easy to warm up to, no wonder everyone loves it. Families pass brisket recipes down like heirlooms. Chat rooms are full of passionate foodies giving passionate opinions about their briskets--and each one claims to have the best brisket recipe ever! When Angel Stadium of Anaheim introduced a BBQ brisket sandwich, it promptly won a national contest for best ballpark cuisine. This lively book offers everything from brisket cooking tips to chef interviews to butcher wisdom. Color photographs, illustrations, and graphics ensure that brisket has never looked better. The recipes include something for everyone: Beef Brisket with Fresh Tangy Peaches, Scandinavian Aquavit Brisket, Sweet-and-Sour Brisket, Barbecued Brisket Sandwiches with Firecracker Sauce, a Seitan Brisket (even people who don't like meat love brisket), and a 100% Foolproof Bride's Brisket.

    If brisket does indeed improve your life, then The Brisket Book promises to be the ultimate life-affirming resource for anyone who has savored--or should savor--this succulent comfort food.
